Can you see the fireworks from Castle Island?

Can you see the fireworks from Castle Island? - Thanks, Sarah

Susan's reply: Because the fireworks go up so high in the sky, you'll be able to see the top portion of the highest ones, especially if you're up on the hill by Fort Independence - down by the water, the view will be less good.

The part of the Charles River where the fireworks are launched is only about 3 miles away, but if you look at a map, you'll see that from Castle Island, you're looking across South Boston, Downtown/Theatre District, and Beacon Hill - so you definitely have some obstruction.

You can find a map near the bottom of this page: Castle Island map

Have fun tomorrow!
